Women's growth in connection : writings from the Stone Center
by Judith Jordan et al
I read this book during my doctoral program and the essays which make up the book helped me understand why I, as a woman, have always valued connection with others. This ontological perspective - that women grow through relationships and connection with others - has formed the basis of my research and teaching philosophy. A "connected" classroom (virtual or face to face) is one that allows every student to have a voice and where nobody has to apologize for uncertainty.
